The governorship election tribunal sitting in Ibadan has affirmed the victory of Seyi Makinde of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) at the March 9 governorship election 2019.

However, Adebayo Adelabu of the all Progressive Congress (APC) had his petition thrown out for lack of substantial evidence. He had prayed the court to declare him winner or order a rerun because his opponent’s winning was fraught with irregularities, over voting and lack of proper accreditation.

The three-man led tribunal headed by Justice Sirajo Muhammed said the opposition failed to prove any of their claims and affirmed Seyi Makinde as governor.
